Dermal fillers are injectable materials used to combat the signs of ageing through reducing deep wrinkles and replacing deficits in facial volume. In this way, fillers can provide long-term cosmetic enhancement by creating a fuller and more youthful look and improving facial contouring.
Today, hyaluronic acid fillers are the most widely used dermal fillers available which are derived from a naturally occurring substance in the skin itself.
The most commonly treated areas include:
Deep forehead wrinkles
Areas of volume loss in the cheekbones, chin and jaw line
Tear troughs in the hollows beneath the eyes
Prior to treatment, a numbing cream is applied to ensure your procedure is as comfortable as possible. The dermal fillers are administered through a series of injections beneath the skin and treatment typically takes 15-30 minutes.
Dermal fillers are considered to be a safe and effective method of tackling the signs of ageing and the effects can last up to 12 months. Your practitioner will discuss the risks and side effects involved and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have before tailoring a specific treatment plan to you. You will be offered a free follow up consultation after 2 weeks to assess the effects of your treatment, with a free top- up of dermal fillers if required.
